Couriering this area this week in 1991 — 30 years ago:

They have been at odds for four years, but Nat Swanson had the last word Tuesday in his conflict with Pat Sheppard. Swanson claimed her job, polling 1,254 votes to 919 for Sheppard. In December, he will be installed as Clemmons’ second elected mayor. He received 58% of the votes cast.  In the village council race, accountant B. Keith Falls and stockbroker W.C. ”Bill” McGee won the two available seats. One is now held by Swanson.  The other is held by William Tschopp, who finished fifth in his bid for re-election.

The outcome was never in doubt — only the vote total. Dr. Hank Chilton became the first elected mayor of Lewisville. He ran unopposed. He has been serving as interim chairman of the board until a mayor could be elected. Six candidates were elected in the race for the Lewisville board. The winners were Kenneth Sadler, Lynn Thrower, Dan Jennings, David McKee, Marcia Enns and Jane Welch.

Keith and Missy Simmons of Lewisville announced the birth of their son, Seth Doyle, on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at Forsyth Hospital. Maternal grandparents are Tom Hamm of Chattanooga, Tennessee, and the late Mary Hamm. Paternal grandparents are Lib and Grant Simmons of Clemmons.

Debbie Dorrough of Clemmons was chosen the 1991 homecoming queen at Chowan College. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bob Dorrough of Clemmons, and is a sophomore business administration major. A graduate of West Forsyth High School, Debbie was escorted at the homecoming by her brother, David, a junior at West Forsyth High School.

Kristy Kind, West Forsyth’s top ranked girls tennis player, reached the final four of the Winston-Salem Regionals and qualified for this week’s state tournament in Chapel Hill. Along with Kind, West also had several other players compete in the region.

The new Miss Forsyth County is Lori Davenport Goins, 21, of Pinehurst Drive in the Lewisville community. She was crowned in a pageant at Parkland High School on Saturday, Oct. 26. A 1988 honor graduate of West Forsyth High School, Goins is a senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She will represent Forsyth County in the Miss North Carolina pageant in Raleigh in June. Goins is the daughter of Tony and Jane Goins.

Wing’s Fashion, a champion American Saddlebred horse, owned by Miriam G. Adams of Lewisville, recently took eighth place in the world three-gaited competition. Adams was very pleased at the achievements of her horse. Cash Lovell Jr. is the trainer and Dawn McIntosh Speas is rider.  The team worked together for two years toward this competition.
